I wouldn't depend on corner framing for hanging whatever even just hooks . We have the extra reinforcement in our walls . It is 3/8 plywood not covering your whole wall at least 1/2 of the wall . Since it is not compress board not really very heavy . You never know if later you would want to attach something to those walls . Just a thought . Pat
The extra reinforcement is 3/8" plywood? and not over most of the wall ? During the factory visit, I asked Nigel and he said it consisted of horizontal framing between vertical ones. That seemed hit or miss at time of installing something unless you had Superman like x-ray vision. I wish some of these options were documented or at least photographed.

When I was dividing up my 21 closet the reinforcement appeared to be rectangular boards inside the wall that extended vertically from the floor area straight up to the overhead cabinet. The area next to the outside curved wall was still hollow, which would sort of confirm that the vertical framing there is the limit for the reinforcement in the wall.

Easiest way to find your framing is to use a super strong magnet and run it across the pretty wood. It will find the colored staples used for attachment.

I have 3M Command hooks in my trailer and have had them installed for several years.
I bought them in white plastic at first and ended up replacing them with the brushed nickle versions. I use white plastic in the bathroom.
I prefer them to using hooks that leave holes because it allows me to change my mind on location.
As I've posted a dozen times, READ and SAVE the instructions and follow them to protect the wall finish.
Pictures show me actually removing a hook.
